Buck Angel (USA)
The man with the pussy is an absolute pioneer not only for the trans-community: as the first ever transporn actor who gained significant recognition, he knows the conservative sex industry and understands how difficult it is to land alternative roles outside the fetish- and freak categories. As a result, he campaigns for the trans-community and their sexuality, and fights for pussy power. His movies „Sexing the transmen“ are completely supportive documentary porn movies in which he pleads for sexuell diversity and self-determination.
Jennifer Lyon Bell (NL)
Her specialty is slow-sex as well as a realistic and pleasurable representation of sexuality with a focus on female pleasure. She captures the changes of the skin during sexual stimulation with her camera and so shares unusual and extraordinary perspectives that are demonstrated by teachers and (female) sexologists alike. Her highly intelligent porn movies support sexual communication while also toying with the roles of the actors and the audiences.
